Types of test
English paper 1 (grammar, punctuation and spelling) and English paper 2(spelling) are available in versions that can be completed online and marked automatically. In addition the English paper 3 (reading) papers have been adapted so they can be downloaded and completed on-screen using Adobe Reader.
Here’s more information about the differences between the paper-based tests and our online versions.
There are two versions of papers 1 and 2 – with or without hints.
Papers with hints
Papers with hints are marked question by question, so the student can review their progress as they go. The hints are there to help them revise and recall what they need to know to tackle each question. There is no time limit.
Papers without hints
The papers without hints are the closest to the real tests, as just like the real tests they are timed and marked on completion, with no help available.
Also available are short timed Workouts; choose between 1-minute, 5-minute and 10-minute durations. These tests are marked as you go and also have hints. Workouts are comprised of questions picked at random from English paper 1 tests. Each time the test is run, a new set of questions is chosen, making them suitable for repeated use.
